I have an Elgato Stream Deck XL and I thought it would make my life easier. However, it turns out, it's a lot of work before it makes your life easier.

The most frustrating thing is when the hotkeys of the stream deck do not match the application any more because the application is in a different state than the Stream Deck thinks.

I am now trying to make video editing with Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve easier. While an Icon Pack exists, it is, well, just an icon pack which does nothing.

What I need is something that actually works, e.g.

  • a Plugin for Stream Deck which interacts with DaVinci Resolve
  • a Plugin for DaVinci Resolve which interacts with Stream Deck
  • a 3rd party software which brings them together

It must

  • work on Windows 10
  • work with a German keyboard Layout
  • come with more than the only 70 icons. I am assuming that we can have the full 32 buttons on each of the 8 main pages (Media, Cut, Edit, Fusion, Color, Fairlight, Deliver), giving a total of at least 240 icons + keyboard mappings

What I found so far:

  • Sideshow FX Stream Deck Profile which does not work for me, because it needs an English keyboard layout. They claim to have more than 1000 icons and shortcuts BTW.

I am not sure about the price. It seems I have to spend at least 35 USD for getting a decent solution.

Sideshow FX is the best bet you have. You just have to take some patience and re-program the shortcuts that works for you. I did something similar, It's not difficult, but tedious work. Hope this helps.
